The sun was out yesterday and that put a smile on my face and some spring in my step. The temperatures are still really cold, but just seeing the sun really perked me up.
I've come up with a name for 3 Barns, Etoiles Au-Dessus de Mon Chateau Rouge,
Stars above my Red Chateau.
I also added another row of sashing, the first row is done!
I know it doesn't look like I made any progress here, but I did, sometimes things have to get messier before they cleaner!
Sunshine really helps with the sorting of the fabric, although I have one piece of fabric that I thought was gray, but when I put it with the grays it looked green, but when I put it with the greens it looked brown! I can't decide if that is a great piece of fabric that will go with anything or nothing, but I'm keeping it.
The reds are looking good!
This is a public service announcement. I think you may need to buy some stuff.
The other day I was putting away all my snowman decorations and getting out Easter and spring stuff. I sure was sad to pack up my snowman wool mat, especially since that was the only wool mat I own. As if Lisa Bongean was reading my mind she posted this spring mat on her shop website. I bought one, I think you need one too! It comes in two colors, but this is the one I went with.
This picture is from the Primitive Gatherings Shop, click here for more information.
This is also offered by Primitive Gatherings, although I borrowed this picture from Linda Hrcka at the Quilted Pineapple.
I blogged about this pattern earlier, it's in Kim Diehl's latest book, Simple Charm and is called Short and Sweet. Primitive Gatherings is offering this project as a kit.
Not only do I like Kim's patterns, but her fabric selections really add a lot to the patterns, I think the Primitive Gatherings Shop did a great job of selecting fabric for this pattern. This pattern has cotton and wool. click here for more detail.
And finally, the Fat Quarter shop's Thelma Bundle give-away runs through March 19, click here, if you're a regular reader of my blog you should have no problem answering the quiz questions.
